Provincial Grand Lodge Of Gloucestershire



The Masonic Fishing Charity's aim is to bring and interactive fishing and countryside experience to people with special needs.

The MTSFC charity achieves its aims by running fishing events, both coarse and fly, at various fisheries and inviting participants from special needs schools and centres and people who have suffered trauma to come along and join in.

This is far more than just a day’s fishing though! It enables mentally disabled people to gain in confidence, meet new challenges and achieve tangible results to take away: it helps disadvantaged people and those from harsh backgrounds to renew their confidence in meeting people and interacting with adults from outside their spheres. It helps physically disabled people (including war heroes and stroke victims) to participate and experience something that may otherwise be unavailable to them and it enables our volunteers to give back to the community and have some fun along the way. This is a national charity completely run by volunteers. It has strong links with Freemasonry however it stands alone as a registered charity and is organised through a regional structure.

If you are a fisherman/woman, or if you just want to give some time to see joy of our guests, please get touch. We are sure you will share with us the special feeling of being able to brighten a disadvantaged young person’s life.
